In 2010, the cosmetic brand Clinique announced Cho as the model for their newest advertisement campaign in Asia. The campaign was launched in mid-November 2010. Clinique was reported to have stated that they "selected Cho not because she was Korean, but because she had the beauty to represent Asia." Cho modeled for Reebok Korea in 2010 and for Nike Japan in 2008. She has also modeled for Apple and Alexander McQueen and appeared in Vogue, Purple Fashion and Nylon Magazine.
On February 22, 2011, Cho released the single "I’m Just a Girl" on iTunes. Cho was the co-writer, composer and singer on the single; Ed Huang was co-writer and music producer. On February 25, 2011, Cho published a self-produced music video for the single on YouTube featuring Tim Lacatena. Musical videos featuring her collaborations with other YouTube figures including Gerald Ko, Jason Chen, Ken Salomon and Megan Lee appear on her ardenBcho YouTube account, reflecting her initial view of them as nonprofessional. Another musical collaboration to which Cho has lent her voice is the non-commercial Mark Allen song "I Once Knew."
